It was cold and rainy today so I wore a jacket during my run. Since I had pockets I decided to bring my phone so I could attempt timing myself. Instead my run became much more of a walk because I could not stop taking pictures. I think it's starting to sink in that I'm leaving in less than three weeks so, while I would have liked to get a good run in, taking some pictures of my running route seemed much more important at the time. While the area can be beautiful when sunny and warm, I think the sky in most of these pictures is a much more accurate representation of Dublin.
|Getting creative with the sidewalk. Just saw this for the first time today. |
I guess it's not a bad thing to slow down every once in a while.

|Down the Liffey towards the city center.|
|A carcass of the Celtic Tiger. Not seen as frequently in the city center but|
empty or half built buildings scatter the outskirts.

|Irish Famine Memorial|
|I run by this every day but this was the first time I stopped to look closely.|
|These little metal circles are all over the sidewalk... most of them have|
these tiny fake fish.

Alright, that's all I've got for you today! I finished my last final on Friday so I'm just waiting to start my last class on Tuesday. I know I'm a little late picking it up, but I've just started watching Breaking Bad. I now get what all the fuss it about. I could focus on some good blog posts but I think I'll spend the next few days watching Breaking Bad instead. Hope you've all had a great weekend!
